20th Sep 2022

Russian Pilots are being encouraged by the countries Deputy Ministry of Industry and Trade, Oleg Bocharov, to become aircraft mechanics themselves. 

“Together with the Ministry of transport we should prepare and certify pilots as universal soldiers: they should be pilots and mechanics at the same time. And the equipment should include the possibility of field repairs,” said Bocharov during a session at the Eastern Economic Forum. 

It was further explained by Bocharov that some aircraft should be modular and allow pilots to replace parts and change the configuration of the cabin themselves.
